In tandem with DSV’s plans, Pacific Proving and Mesa BA Land have announced ambitious intentions for the remaining 800 acres of the former GM Proving Grounds, specifically the parcel in blue on the map below.
Principals Andrew Cohn and Bill Levine aim to create a “dense, quality, lifestyle environment” comprising residential, retail, and a corporate campus within a walkable setting. Cohn emphasized that they intend to break ground on this transformative project within the next 24 months.
Mesa D6 Councilmember Scott Somers met with the developers earlier this month to discuss the project.
“This project by Levine Investments is exactly the high-quality hospitality and retail development the residents have been asking for, said Somers in a conversation with 85212.com. “Now that we have new ownership and financial stability for the Arizona Sports Complex, this developer can begin moving forward with this project. They hope to be able to break ground in the next 24 months.”
While the specifics of the project are yet to be publicly unveiled, Cohn drew parallels with renowned retail developments such as Kierland Commons and Scottsdale Quarter. The proposed mixed-use project is expected to redefine Mesa’s urban landscape, offering a unique blend of residential, retail, and corporate amenities in a manner not seen before in the region.
“This will be a multi-year project. The people at Levine have a lot of experience with this type of development,” said Somers. “I am looking forward to working very closely with them to deliver this high-end development to Mesa.”
